Outdoor Equipment – Craghoppers Kiwi Pro rucksack review

It is my great pleasure to be able to introduce you to the new member of the Blonde One outdoor gear family. The Craghoppers 30 litre Kiwi Pro rucksack is slightly smaller than I would use on a long day on the hill leading a group but for a smaller hill day then this is the perfect bag. It is large enough to carry all the usual things: waterproofs, map, drink, snacks. It is small enough not to slow you down or make your shoulders ache (this could be something to do with the well padded straps though)! There are several useful pockets, including a section for a hydration bladder for a hill day and a padded laptop pocket for a town day. Some might suggest that you can’t be good at two things at once but with this bag, I disagree. The two features I like the best are the pocket that’s the perfect size for my car keys and the optional fluorescent strap for walking in poor visibility. It comes in four colours: this one being Red Earth (I do love a red rucksack).

From time to time we Blondes are sent free outdoor products to field test and promote on social media. We will always be honest about our findings and any products we don’t keep for ourselves find their way into our expedition stores. Great for us, great for you and great for our youngsters!
